About the Author
America’s Sex Culture: Its Impact upon Teacher-Student Relationships Today is a wake-up call for anyone who cares about today’s students. As a parent and teacher, I am especially grateful for Dr. Zarra’s research and insights how to best navigate student-teacher relationships in our hyper-sexed culture. This is an issue we cannot afford to ignore.

Dr. Zarra aptly describes the changes in today's teacher-student relationships. Different attitudes and behaviors regarding sex have found their ways into the classrooms and are affecting the education landscape. The affects are apparent, and so is the need for concise definitions of boundaries. America's Sex Culture helps to traverse troublesome landmines and provides clarity, while offering solutions to inappropriate relationships.

In this edition, Dr. Zarra has covered the landscape as regards the impact of the sex culture on our children and their schools. He begins with a consideration of developmental issues, moves on to the ever-expanding sexual choices and norms we are seeing, and then to the impact of technology on the subject. He gives in-depth treatment to the impact of the sex culture on teacher-student relationships in our schools and ends with an excellent chapter on proactive policy needs. If you are a stake-holder in school-age education, you need this book!
